2) Read our FAQ, which can be found on our website. Carbon FAQ

3) Ask a question in your device forum. Someone will no doubt try to help you. Warning: this help may come in the form of telling you it's a dumb question that has been asked before.

...Here is the new discussion thread for the CarbonRom n7000 releases....a new round of nightlies will be available in the morning. Kejar31, Morfic, and myself will continue to support the exynos4 line in spite of our fallen brother....Sadly we had to part ways with ToxicThunder...the details of this can be discussed elsewhere. Carbon is dedicated to continuing the advancement and development of the n7000 and i9100. (as well as all of our devices) Next nightly should be up on the servers in a few hours and i highly reccomend checking them out...

Re: [ROM][AOSP][GCC 4.7/-O3] CarbonRom 1.5 beta JB 4.2.2 [n7000] » Mar 3

I'm sorry for asking a stupid question right off the bat, but what is gcc/-O3?

GCC 4.7 in this scenario refers to Google's GCC 4.7, i would list that in the title except it doesnt look that nice. You may be familiar with the term 'linaro' Google's GCC 4.7 shares a lot of the same traits and tools as the linaro toolchain and in benchmarking (the ROM...kernel is a different story) it seems to outscore linaro almost everytime (across the board) so for now well be sticking with it....The best explanation of O3 i can give you will come from gentoo wiki Which has some pretty cool excerpts...Here's one that might help you gain an understanding of Os, O2, and O3...
gentoowiki said:
What effects -O3 has
-O3 is the highest optimization level and could possibly make faster code but the applications that benefit from it are very few, usually image and video decoders and such. However the side effects, like larger binary size, affects everything. Larger binaries use more memory, load slower, cause more disc I/O, etc. So compiling a system with -O3 will have the effect that a few applications run slightly faster at the expense of the rest of the system running slightly slower and becoming less responsive.
Linux caches regularly used programs and files in RAM (that's the "cache" part when you run free -m on the command line), so the program may only need loading from the hard disk once (depending on the program and computer usage). Therefore this is less of a problem on systems with large amounts of RAM. A large CPU cache also helps as it is better suited to larger binaries, so you are more likely to see some sort of speed up. So if you have a high-end system, you will suffer less from the problems associated with -O3.

The choice: Summarised
-O2 is the default optimization level. It is ideal for desktop systems because of small binary size which results in faster load from HDD, lower RAM usage and less cache misses on modern CPUs. Servers should also use -O2 since it is considered to be the highest reliable optimization level.
-O3 only degrades application performance as it produces huge binaries which use high amount of HDD, RAM and CPU cache space. Only specific applications such as python and sqlite gain improved performance. This optimization level greatly increases compilation time.
-Os should be used on systems with limited CPU cache (old CPUs, Atom ..). Large executables such as firefox may become more responsive using -Os.

@Nocoast - Check your PM.

@All else, please stop with the arguing and speculation. Once this gets taken care of, the thread will be cleaned anyways so no point in wasting keystrokes.

**********************
Edit: Ok the 2nd post was revised. Please note that all team movings and shakings can be read, delat with, talked about, spammed, whatever on the team site. Whether it be Carbon or some other team. There is no need for it here. This is a Development thread about the ROM and not team politics.

Thanks to all, however bangsti, Galaxtus and nocoast, your volleys had to go to preserve the real reason for this thread....ROM Development

Let's not argue here guys. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. If i contributed 0% code, I am sorry I couldn't do more.
I tried to do everything to the best of my ability and I learnt a lot in the process.

Cheers :)

I loved your Rom, pretty solid bro, thanks, we will be seeing you around m8!

Re: [ROM][AOSP][GCC 4.7/-O3] CarbonRom 1.5 beta JB 4.2.2 [n7000] » Mar 3

Hope someone can help me here as I love this ROM but at the moment it is becoming unstable for me. I am suffering random reboots and recently getting a huge battery drain. All of a sudden my phone become really hot, almost too hot to touch, and the battery just drops off.

I was on 1.5 beta but have gone back to 1.4. My battery stats show gpsd having a huge drain, any idea what this is and how to fix it? Or could it be something else.

How do I get hold of the latest nightly?

Thanks

I had this also yesterday.
Gpsd was eating my battery.
I installed terminal emulator. It's free in play store.
First reboot.

Then open terminal emulator.
Type: su
Enter
Type: killall gpsd
Enter.
Close terminal emulator.

I have also better battery stats installed.
So, if all is ok. You will see the battery drain stop.

For me this worked.:)
Battery drain now between 2 and 3% per hour.

yeah thats obviously some kind of wakelock...please try the latest nightly and let me know if the problem persists...

Thanks for the reply, and this may sound stupid but where will I find the latest nightly? Lol

I have performed a full wipe as well as dalvic and cache. I have installed 1.5 beta and will monitor.

Thanks

Only in apps such as Facebook etc. Not sure how to turn off yet with this ROM lol

You can find them in the download section for GTN700 : http://goo.im/devs/carbon/n7000

does the nightlies require a full wife coming from stables? or just do it?
I have just wipe cache dalvkik cache from 1.3, 1.4, 1.5beta np with nightlies for the moment :)


edit:
I think I have the battery charging problem mentionned for 1.5beta that even Toxic encountered... Plugged in and charging really really slow...

    Hi all, I'm a Carbon Rom team member, and just got my hands on a second hand n7000, so am now the maintainer for this device...

    When I get home I will root and flash carbon, and try to get the thread out into my name (for easier conscience (easier to see the OP))...

    Haven't tried the ROM yet (I'm downloading right now :D ) but +1, the swipe thingy is super awesome. Please add it :)

    As said by moviecut, it is in the rom, you must swipe at the bottom bar (the bit that turns blue)
